Marc Almond - Gyp The Blood

rate me

And here I sit

A cowardly boy

Adventure only dreams

A captain of

A pirate ship

A million crimson themes

I wish to be

Content you see

To take the softer seat

To summon gut

To play the slut

My bass drum for to beat

Hey!

Gyp the blood

Gyp the blood

Anchor in my heart

Skull and crossbones to the breeze

A heave ho to depart

But it happened that

There came a ghost

To visit on my soul

I coloured him

From picture books

With eyes as rich as gold

A ghost who would

Embody

All my sickly frame would be

A hero

And a challenger

Of heart and spirit free

Hey!

Gyp the blood

Gyp the blood

Anchor of my heart

Skull and crossbones to the breeze

A heave ho to depart

And gyp the blood

And I retook

The world upon our backs

And we drank from dawn

To dusk

How the warm breeze took our drags

For we had the reins

On europe we

Had our anger like a flame

The balls to fight

The system

And the nerve to win the game

Gyp the blood

Gyp the blood

Anchor of my heart

Skull and crossbones to the breeze

A heave ho to depart

So purity

I would spit upon

All saintly sights be damned

For it seems correct

To kill and steal

To be a proper man

I find myself

Full up with hate

To lose it on the world

An eye for deeds

Of darker shade

And a lip so wickedly curled

A skull encrusted

Captains hat

Fell down upon my brow

I gathered all

My hopes and schemes

All wisdom for to know

And rip the shirts

I wore around

My shoulders like a robe

Dark ermine trim

And tainted grin

Grim warnings to forbode

And all the love within me

Would be churned for something sour

My angels tongue ripped from my throat

And tortured by the hour

For I have no time to learn

For love wounds me with its touch

May the gods take me a screaming

May the gods take me a screaming...

Gyp the blood

Gyp the blood

Anchor of my heart

Skull and crossbones to the breeze

A heave ho to depart

May the gods take me a screaming

May the gods take me a screaming...
